"Light brilliant yellow. Intense, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruit scents show very good clarity and pick up hints of jasmine, candied ginger and smoky lees as the wine opens up. Displays very good breadth and seamless texture on the palate, offering juicy, smoke-accented nectarine, Anjou pear and orange flavors that become more taut with air. The mineral quality repeats strongly on the long, juicy finish, which leaves behind energetic Meyer lemon and floral notes."
In the Rhone Valley, or through the most beautiful regions of France and the world, the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER lets the terroir express itself.
This elegant wine presents a brilliant gold color
fruity aromas of peach, lemon and green apple. This bouquet is completed with lighter notes of jasmine and acacia as well as buttery and mineral hints.
The minerality, character of the limestone terroirs, is the backbone of this wine. The clayey soil of Pouilly gives it its fruity aspect and amplitude. The product of this blend, crisp and full-bodied at the same time, has a long saline finish and a high level of refinement, hallmark of the Pouilly-Fuissé Trénel.
Sommelier's advice: Serve at 10° to 12° C throughout the meal. It goes beautifully with a Bresse chicken with morels or a blanquette de veau. Try it on salmon sashimi or prawns with curry for an exotic pairing. To drink within 5 to 10 years.
Limestone and marly-limestone formations.
The fermentations take place in steel tanks or oak barrels (25% of the volume). We limit the use of oak to let the wine fully express its terroir.
